From the first page of this romance, I was completely smitten. This is a completely clean historical romance, and the story is simple but well-written. Although the ending is assured, the author quite deftly included a bit of tension right before the conclusion. That extra measure alone has made me a super fan of this author! In addition to this, the writing style is quite reminiscent of the classic authors such as the Bronte sisters and Jane Austen. I had to remind myself that this is a book written by a modern author because it is unlike the vast majority of historical romances I have read. I actually had to use a dictionary to decipher the meaning of some of the vocabulary, and I love that (yes, I am a teacher–can’t you tell?)
Quite sincerely, I cannot think of a way this book would have been better. The characters were well-developed, and even though the story was fairly straightforward and generally easy to figure out, isn’t that the way you want a light, clean romance? Perhaps it’s not realistic, but what an amazing escape from humdrum life!
I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.
